Table width issue

Have a strange issue that has started popping up.  I have a form I am using as a print friendly page of an underlying form. It is a series of sectioned tables. Most of the tables are working perfectly, but I have a couple spots where the formatting I set keeps getting overridden by the system. I have a table with 3 columns, the final column has a series of underlines used to capture a wet date on the printed output, the whole doc is an NASD compliance signoff.  I set the width of the column to 2" to allow for the date line, I save, go do a test print and it looks perfect. Later I go back in and the width of the column is now .7" and the wrapping for the table looks completely messed up.

Any idea why it keeps reverting to a smaller size, I have looked everywhere and cannot see a reason for the size change.

1) Are you using a design template, and making the changes there, and updating your production DB ?

If not, then I would definitely consider doing that for ay works in progress.

Are you sure that you are ot going beyond any defined page boundaries, etc ?

I hope this helps !

I am not doing it from a design template, I may go with that, but it is not one that is live yet. I cannot find a page boundary that might be causing this. The 3 columns combined are less than 8", it is formated to fit a letter size page.  Really strange one.

Figured it out, there was an issue with the text margins in a paragraph above. New lesson, paragraph margins can override table widths.
